Cal Scott and Richard Moore are thrilled to welcome singer-songwriter/guitar wizard Mary Flower to their bi-monthly circle at O'Connor's Vault in Multnomah Village, Monday, February 2 at 7:00pm.
Nobody picks it like Mary Flower. Flower's immense fingerpicking guitar and lap-slide prowess is soulful and meter-perfect, a deft blend of the inventive, the dexterous and the mesmerizing. Her supple honey-and-whiskey voice provides the perfect melodic accompaniment to each song's story.
An internationally known and award-winning picker, singer/songwriter and teacher, the Midwest native relocated from Denver to the vibrant Portland, Oregon, music scene in 2004 and hasn't looked back since. She continues to please crowds and critics at folk festivals and concert including Merlefest, Kerrville, King Biscuit, Prairie Home Companion and the Calgary Folk Festival, among many.
A finalist in 2000 and 2002 at the National Fingerpicking Guitar Championship (Top 3 both years, and the only woman), a nominee in 2008 and 2012 for a Blues Foundation Blues Music Award, and a 2011 Portland Muddy Award winner, Flower embodies a luscious and lusty mix of rootsy, acoustic-blues guitar and vocal styles that span a number of idioms from Piedmont to the Mississippi Delta, with stops in ragtime, swing, folk and hot jazz.
Plays the blues with the soul and wit they were created to be played with shows an intimacy with the music that's felt by few. -Vintage Guitar
Superlativesuch a high level of proficiency that your heart will beat faster and your blood race. -Downbeat
There are few musicians in the genre bringing as much creative spark and low-key mojo to this century-old music -Acoustic Guitar
There's a consummate melodiousness to Flower's work she's like the Joni Mitchell of the blues: everything the woman does turns to beauty. -Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange
The usual suspects bookending Mary will be Cal Scott, jack-of-many-genres who writes and performs with The Trail Band and Kevin Burke, and the word-witty and tune-wise Richard Moore, likely to share a few more scenes from "Rain," his musical-in-the-works about Portland.
Discount advance tickets are $12 each from
or $15 at the door. This show will sell out.
